I have read other posts on this forum and none of which I read are solving my problem.

Whenever I do: http://www.example.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?filter[posts_per_page]=-1

Or even: http://www.example.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?filter[posts_per_page]=99

It still returns 10 posts. The same is happening when I try to get the Categories, or the Tags.

I have a request to pull ALL categories, tags, and posts from the REST API as a single list.

According to the documentation, the correct argument is per_page

  • I just tried example.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?filter[per_page]=-1 and example.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?filter[per_page]=99 with the same results. The reason I'm trying 99 is I heard they might have done away with the -1 param and limited it to 1-100. Just trying things based on what I read. Commented May 18, 2017 at 16:37

    Wait! I got it. You're right. example.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?per_page=100 works! Without the filter[] Commented May 18, 2017 at 16:39
  • Do you know if there's a way to get it beyond 100? or how I get the next 100? Maybe there's a script for this...? Commented May 18, 2017 at 16:40
  • No way to get around it that I know of. It's for performance reasons. Just make multiple calls using page=1, page=2, etc. It returns a total count of items found so that will tell you how many calls to make.

    I updated the answer with the resolution to get beyond 100 by using a loop with a page query. Just waiting for approval. Commented May 23, 2017 at 1:29

You can only able to retrieve 100 post per page,after that use pagination as Wordpress wpjson post pagination.

Eg : http://example.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?per_page=100&page=6

This will fetch the 6th page and which contains 100 post ranging between 500 and 600 posts.
